Age at interview: 58
Wayne: Wayne, aged 58, only started having breathing problems four years ago. He is married with two adult children and works full time as a construction supervisor. He is frustrated that different healthcare providers have labelled his condition as different things. After a lung biopsy they found he had a high level of eosinophils (white blood cells). He would prefer to deal with something that can be “fixed”. It’s hard to be social when you can’t drink alcohol and get tired very quickly.
